Here is a great post at Living Montessori Now for DIY geometric solids and solid activity ideas. Our solids are a combination of items I found amongst the children's toys and a basic wood set I purchased off Ebay. Our three part cards are from Montessori Print Shop. Also from Montessori Print shop are our solid sorting cards.
After our review we moved onto Polygon work. We started with this free set of lessons that used both objects from home and the geometry sticks. I loved the lessons, they were simple and well laid out and the sticks were such an interest catcher for our children. I purchased the sticks from Kid Advance Montessori and cork board squares from either Target of Walmart. We just worked our way through the lessons and I added in other activities when appropriate. We also went through this little booklet about polygons from Montessori Print Shop. When we pick up geometry again in January we will continue to work our way through the other booklets that Montessori Print Shop has to offer on triangles, angels, circles and lines.

The biggest help I had in planning our lessons was this post from Making Montessori Ours.
Today is Montessori Monday and I am linking up, go visit and check out what others are doing at home to make the Montessori style of education attainable to all.
